Good Saturday! Another hot and steamy night for our Saturday. Mostly cloudy skies are expected for our Saturday with lows dipping into 70s. There is a chance for us to see a pop up showers west of the Blue Ridge after midnight. But the better chance for us to see thunderstorms will be for our Sunday. A cold front will begin to move in from our west midday Sunday. With the amount of heat and humidity that we will see on Sunday this will fuel a few storms. The main threat that we will see on Sunday would be gusty winds. Storms at times may be strong and large hail will not be out of the question. The northern and western portions of Maryland and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia could see storms kick off around 1 p.m. And towards the D.C. Metro area and Northern Virginia storms could kick off around 7 p.m. Behind this cold front we will see much cooler air. A trough will begin to build in our area and we will see our winds shift out of the south for our Monday which will allow for warm and moist air to return to our area. Clouds will increase for our Monday and this will give us another chance for us to see rain.
